Patak; her parents, Albert and Barbara Linehan; in-laws, Albert and Helen Patak; sister, Elissa Braswell and husband, Van; brother, David Linehan and wife, Barbara; sisters-in-law, Sharon Kudrna and husband, Michael, Sandra Lowe and husband, James, Stephanie Nichols and husband, Paul Brighton, and Sheila Cox and husband, Tim.
